Hi there. I must add that I play this song on a classical guitar, so it sounds good with 
but isn't exactly how they play it on electric, though it still works!

X: mute on string- not palm. Keep same chord and lift fingers slightly. U know, youre all guitarists!
This is the main verse: The sky is falling.

That I feel is the main riff. The groupings of four above this are played quick with the 
two in each 4 tighter together to get a good rhythm! Listen to track and You'll see.

Pre chorus part played twice. 2nd time play ^8-10-10^ section twice.
